About the face: Every year at the beginning of spring, the Holi festival is celebrated across India and Nepal. Also known as the “festival of colors” or the “festival of love,” it’s a gathering of people to celebrate the victory of good over evil, the beginning of spring and the end of winter. It’s a full day of thanksgiving and a time to repair broken relationships.
This year’s celebration took place on Monday, March 13th—the evening of the Purnima. And while we might be a little behind the Vikram Samvat Hindu Calendar, many of us are celebrating the beginning of spring now. So in honor of the Holi festival, and our own welcoming of spring, this week’s free font is a Devanagari typeface created by Ananda Maharjan.
This free font comes with three styles and is free to download for personal use. Please be kind and attribute the talented designer when using any of the Ananda family.
“Pyar ke rang se bharo pichkari,
sneh ke rang do duniya sari,
ye rang na jane koi jaat na koi boli,
aapko mubarak ho aapno ki holi.”
